Code 0/Screecher Design Process

Catamaran type Code 0's are called Screechers and specially made for catamarans. Screechers are designed a little more flat than a code 0, due to the design of the Catamaran and their sails. Fareast sails Screechers are fully customized with your sailing style in mind. Screechers are radial cut for optimal performance. Each sail is assembled in an organized data sheet for you. You will then be able to review the chart and make changes. Once you approve the chart, we draw each sail and we provide you CAD drawing of your sail(s). You can again review and make changes. Once you approve the drawings, we cut your sail. The process is quite easy.
